My au pair group had a thanksgiving pie challenge at our November monthly meeting. They were given individual samplings of 3 different kinds of pies—PUMPKIN, PECAN and APPLE CRUMB. The verdict……Apple Crumb came in first, closely behind was the Pecan Pie and Pumpkin was the third place. This is a new tradition for most au pairs since this holiday is not celebrated in their country. My group has 16 different countries represented. So, “Let them Eat Pie” now and at their Thanksgiving meal later this month.
Also, in the news on the food scene: Former male au pair/”manny” who spent a year in Los Angeles, is now a winning chef. See article.
